“But it’s most important that we stay vigilant. Test centers will continue to open in Wellington Central, Polylua, Kapiti Coast, Hat Valley and Wairarapa.”

This is because New Zealand has announced that it will resume the Australian travel bubble in certain states such as South Australia, ACT, Tasmania and Victoria from midnight on Saturday, July 4th.

Travelers must have a negative pre-departure test before flying to New Zealand. Also, you may not stay in Queensland, Northern Territory, or Western Australia after 10:30 pm on June 26th. Also, you must not stay in New South Wales. After 11:59 pm on June 22, Wales is eligible to fly.

Travel suspensions in these states will be reviewed on July 6.

New South Wales is considered by New Zealand authorities to be the highest risk, and Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory are at higher risk than New Zealand authorities are “comfortable.”

“This morning, the Cabinet carefully reviewed the evidence. We believe that partial lifting of the suspension is a proportional action if enhanced by compulsory pre-departure testing and the introduction of other health measures. “I will,” said Hypkins.

“Today’s decision gives airlines, passengers, and government officials time to prepare for their return flights from states that are considered low risk when the suspension is lifted.

“We know how important the bubble is, especially for families and businesses, but we also want to avoid having to deal with the incident here in New Zealand,” he said.
